The latest price down under in Sydney is around $1.40 $1.50 per litre
That’s roughly $5.50 to $5.80 US a gallon.
No wonder they call me Grumpy.

I’m building a big rat truck. Put a REO dump truck cab on a 24’ motor home frame with a 440 dodge engine.With 5 gals. of gas i was good to go for the 10 mile round trip. I was suprized when it ran outta gas before i got home. Less than 2 mpg. Just a little more tuneing and i should get 10 mpg. BUT i look gooood driving it !!!

Wow, 39mpg? Thats impressive! Best I’ve ever had was in my Mustang, about 32 or so. I had a 96 F250 powerstroke that got me 22 one time on a 900 mile road trip…tailwind helped, but still!

My “best” fuel economy I ever had was in a 1990 Geo Metro; 49 MPG on a highway trip. That was back when gas was only $0.80/L..sigh…I love my truck but I cry a little bit each time I fuel up…
